The Thursday Three- Arts & Crafts Embroidery and Silkscreen printing

Every now and then, my treasure trawling pulls up a knock-out piecewool embroidery on felted fabric

If this very large hand embroidery in wools on a woven felted wool background isn’t an original , mid 19th century, Arts & Crafts piece from a disciple of Mr William Morris, I will eat one of my many hats. LOOK AT THOSE MOTIFS!

I have also reviewed my dating of this wool embroidery –leftI did think 1930’s , now pretty sure that it is older.

Both found on ebay for peanuts. It beats trawling dodgy overpriced  antique fairs in the winter months.??????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????

Right-as a complete contrast, how about this photo-silkscreen on raw canvas of George Harrison, executed by the (soon to be) famous Dan Bladen (my son)

Remember, you read about him right here, first.
